PGPD Announces “Gift Cards for Guns” Event

The Prince George’s County Police Department is partnering with the faith community in an upcoming “Gift Cards for Guns” event. In an effort to reduce gun violence, the PGPD will accept guns from anyone who wants to anonymously trade them in. The guns may be in any condition. In return, citizens will receive a gift card valued at $50, $100 or $150, depending on the type of gun. Anyone wishing to participate is asked to respond to the collection site with the gun unloaded and in the trunk of their vehicle. A uniformed police officer will greet them at the entrance and provide further instructions. Unwanted ammunition, BB and pellet guns may be disposed of at this event but will not be eligible for a gift card.
